  1. NEWARK [url=http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-ian-cole-jersey]Adidas Ian Cole Jersey[/url] , N.J. (AP) — Jusse Saros gave the Nashville Predators a second chance to win with a save on a short-handed, third-period breakaway.Filip Forsberg and Kyle Turris took care of the rest.Turris made a length of the ice rush and snapped a shot past Keith Kinkaid 3:35 into overtime and the Predators rallied to beat the New Jersey Devils 4-3 on Thursday night.Forsberg forced the overtime with a power-play goal with 6: 20 left in regulation. It came less than a minute after Saros stopped a breakaway by Blake Coleman with the Devils ahead 3-2.“It’s just Juice,” Turris said about the Finnish goaltender who has started the last three games with Vezina Trophy winner Pekka Rinne out with an undisclosed injury. “He comes up big for us every night. He makes saves like that to keep us in games, or keep us in a lead. He’s such a good goalie.”The save and Forsberg’s goal set things up for Turris. He made his rush, used Devils defenseman Andy Greene as a screen and beat Kinkaid.“There’s a lot of space in overtime, it allows you to be creative and use speed and it’s exciting hockey,” Turris said. “It’s always fun to play 3 on 3. I love the open ice.”Viktor Arvidsson and Yannick Weber also scored as the Predators sent the Devils to their third straight loss.“That’s was a big two points and a big comeback and it shows character to come back like that,” said Saros, who finished with 33 saves. “It was a fast game and both teams had some chances, it was a tight one.”Nico Hischier scored twice, Damon Severson added a goal [url=http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-philipp-grubauer-jersey]Adidas Philipp Grubauer Jersey[/url] , Kyle Palmieri had a career-high three assists, and Taylor Hall added two assists — as the Devils’ top line of Hischier, Palmieri and Hall had seven points. Kinkaid made 32 saves.Coleman was disappointed after the game.“I just faked and dropped and tried to go upstairs on the far side,” he said. “He made a good save and in a one-goal game I have to find a way to put that home. It came back to cost us.”Forsberg made the Devils’ pay, scoring from the left circle, his seventh goal of the season. It was only the fourth power-play goal for Nashville in 35 attempts.Saros preserved the tie in the final minutes of the third period, stopping a point-blank power-play chance by Marcus Johansson and a blast by Palmieri.The Devils took a one-goal lead three times with the Hischier, Hall and Palmieri line doing most of the work.Severson gave New Jersey a 1-0 lead 2:58 after the opening faceoff, scoring on a shot from the point after being set up by Hall and Hischier.While the Predators had several great chances in the period, Weber tied the game with his first goal of the season on a soft wrist shot by Kinkaid simply missed.Hischier put the Devils back in front with less seconds left in the period with a power-play goal. Hall made the play, hitting the center stick with a pass that the Swiss center deflected past Saros.Arvidsson [url=http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-cale-makar-jersey]Adidas Cale Makar Jersey[/url] , who now has four goals in his last three games, tied the score with 6:54 left in the second period with a shot from the top of the circles which hit off Kinkaid’s glove.New Jersey went back ahead 40 seconds later when Hischier deflected Palmieri’s pass over Saros for his third goal of the season.Notes: The Devils’ Brian Boyle played in his 700th NHL game. … W Ds Ben Lovejoy and Steve Santini on injured reserve, D Eric Gryba played in his first game this season. … Preds D Mattias Ekholm played in his 400th game, while F Colton Sissons appeared in his 200th. … The Predators failed to score on three power plays and are now 3 of 34 for the season. … F Rocco Grimaldi, a California native who was a former second-round draft by Florida, made his debut with Nashville.

St. Louis is singing the blues coming into Las Vegas on Friday night to face the Golden Knights off a 1-0 loss to a Chicago Blackhawks team that had lost eight straight games while Vegas looked golden again in a 5-0 rout of Anaheim.Both games occurred Wednesday night, giving St. Louis (6-7-3, 15 points) and Vegas (8-10-1) one day to prepare for their encounter at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.Speaking of golden, Vegas veteran Marc-Andre Fleury debuted his glittering gold goaltending pads in the win over the Ducks, a game in which he had a 29-save shutout. Vegas scored on three of its first four shots of the second period to cruise to the lopsided win.Article continues below ...The five goals by the Knights match a season high set Nov. 8 in a 5-3 victory at Ottawa.“I don’t know if it was the pads or the way the guys played, you know?” Fleury said with a laugh. “Definitely a good feeling to get a win again and not give up too many goals there.”The Vegas locker room had the same jovial feel of last year’s historic success in the Golden Knights’ inaugural season. The team needed a lift with it now tied for sixth in the Pacific Division with Arizona.The Golden Knights are six points from division leader Vancouver (10-6-3 [url=http://www.bluejacketsshoponline.com/authentic-adam-clendening-jersey]Adidas Adam Clendening Jersey[/url] , 23 points) but also the same distance from last-place team Los Angeles (5-11-1, 11 points).Vegas center Cody Eakin scored twice against Anaheim for his first multi-goal game since March 8 at Detroit. He has scored points in five consecutive games. Alex Tuch and defenseman Nick Holden finished with a goal and an assist.“I’m just having fun,” Eakin told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I think that’s important to enjoy it and have fun. Pucks are going in right now. There will be times when they aren’t, but I’ll try and ride it.”The Blues, meanwhile, did not have fun in the loss to Chicago, and they now enter Friday’s game on a two-game losing skid and in last place in the Central Division (three points behind the struggling Blackhawks).To make matters worse, the Blues were shut out for the first time this season at the hands of Chicago, which has been forced to already make a coaching change.St. Louis has scored two goals or fewer in three of its past five games. The Blues have lost three of those games.“We just have to find ways to win right now,” St. Louis coach Mike Yeo said. “That’s what it comes down to.”The Blues are having trouble putting games together in which their offense and defense come together.They had a 4-1 recent stretch in which they had goal totals of seven, five [url=http://www.bluejacketsshoponline.com/authentic-riley-nash-jersey]Adidas Riley Nash Jersey[/url] , four and four. Their defense, however, struggled in those games. Now, their quality defense is masking an offense that is finding it hard to score.The Blues have scored 52 goals but have allowed 52. They are the only team besides Chicago (minus-15 goal differential) that is not on the plus side of goal differential in the Central Division.“We’ve been scoring a lot of goals this year,” center Tyler Bozak said. “We had some chances (against Chicago) and weren’t able to finish it off. We’ve been scoring tons of goals and giving up a lot and then we can’t score and we only give up one. It’s a tough loss. I thought we did a lot of good things, but we have to get back to work tomorrow.”
